    I wouldn't worry about the spelling of Briar, plus I think that is the way most people would spell it anyway. Trust me, it is not so bad at all. My name is Alicia (Alysha, Alecia, Aleighsha, Alycia, ETC) and although it is mildly annoying that people either spell it wrong or say it wrong (Ah-lee-sha, Ah-lish-ah, Ah-lee-see-ah) one quick correction solves the problem.

    I LOVE the name Briar. Too bad where I am from there is a popular curling tournament called the Brier (hahah, oh Canada)

    I'm glad you like Caraway! It's been one of my favorites forever! It's easy to spell and pronounce, and it's kinda familiar but completely unexpected as a first name. Plus most importantly for me, it has a gorgeous sound to it!
    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
